I absolutely love this little pup by Deedee's Digis so it was easy for me to CASE a card I had made earlier with the same image. Kathy D had suggested that I add the graduation cap to my card. My nephew will graduate from Iowa State in December so I decided to use school colors for the background. He wants to get a puppy as soon as he has a "real" job and his own place which is the start of my inspiration. I have had lots of fun as a guest this month. Thanks to all, especially Zella, Guest Designer Coordinator.

This card was super fun to make. A Darice embossing folder to create the background; I embossed the paper twice to add a little depth. Both images were used pre-colored but I did recolor the sentiment to a matching blue. I used OWH Sketch #253 to create the card. I will definitely miss getting new sketches to use each month when they close August 1st. Some sequins were added to replace the bubbles I lost when I fussy cut the image.

This card is being featured over at Deedee's Digis. It is a CASE of one that I had made earlier, but this time I colored it using some Copics. The Ball jar image can be found here. I just love how one can mock emboss using a white Signo pen...it really softens up the image. The papers out of my giant scrap pile.

Hello! This week's sketch by OWH seemed a perfect fit for this sweet image by 2 Cute Ink. Heidi has a monthly freebie that is available by signing up. Papers used were dug out of the scrap pile. The tickets were another digi that I had saved a couple of years back. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there... Just a quick post to share a few details about today's card. I printed the wreath out twice on kraft and fussy cut one out. I used the second one to cut out the rounded leaves to pop them up a wee bit. Edges were all inked and Glossy Accents was added to the berries. Another easy card once the cutting is complete and I just love the font on the sentiment!

Here is my card that is featured on the current challenge at Words 2 Scrap By: It's a Man's World. It is a CASE of a card I had made previously. The mechanic is a Birdie Brown digi that is no longer available. The retro background is an older image that I found through Free Digital Stamps. I love how the colored image really pops when next to it.
I am playing catch-up on my posting. Lucky me to be asked to be a guest by Deedee's Digis for this month. This card features a verse from Endless Beginnings and a frame is from Blooming Blessings. I printed both out as one image and then did a little fussycutting. White faux stitching and Liquid Pearls were added as the final touches. Super easy card.
I have decided to start donating some of the cards I make to a group of retired nuns for their personal use. So many of Deedee's Digis will work perfectly for this venture. My sister takes care of their hair needs which is how I got the idea.
